Sharing with fellow students

Sometimes we think we have to give or do some thing to some one for them to know that we care for them. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Just love if you are to love and care with all your heart if you are to care.  Be there for them when no one else is there.

LIFE gets a greater meaning when we all lay down our in differences even if  just for a second and focus on our similarities and Issues that bond us as humans.  Let’s treasure those.
Be the first to make the step.  That’s when real love begins.
Youth Empowerment Assembly 2012(YEA) won’t be the same without you!
Let’s raise high the banner “YOU, ME AND THE WORLD”

We all Need each Other

We Need each other

Immy Explaining the Concept of Expanding Choices

I recently discovered that I am incomplete without the other person. When you look into some one else eyes critically,  the person you see is yourself.  So I concluded I am incomplete without the other person.  We all need each other – You,  Me and the World.

This is the spirit behind the Youth Empowerment Assembly, 2012.

Back to Oslo tired and inspired

I arrived safely back to Oslo. I am exhausted by energized at the same, tired but inspired, most of all i feel humbled and honoured having worked with you all again. For me this training session was a great experience and it was wonderful to share it with you. I feel your youthful energy rubbed onto me and I am now a few years younger. I thank you for your courage to share your personal experience and recognize each other as unique persons. I left assured that you have the courage, the will, the leadership qualities to manage the YEA 2012. The venue was the icing on the cake. Can’t wait for August to see you in action.

Ayub and the information team, thanks for the blog. It is one great development of the YEA concept.

You and I

To you with love,
This generation, those before us and those to come need us. The last thing we can ever do is to let them down, lets overcome our indifference, fears, weakness and match with courage. It’s one life to live.


Making a differnce is no simple joke!

From childhood, I always dreamed of making a difference in the lives of the people around me.  Last year around July, after a rigorous selection process, I  was selected by my school (Mengo Senior School)  among the five students to be part of a great cause of making a difference in my world.
Together with a team of other 22 students from differnt schools and institutions in Uganda, we began the road marking the  dream that I really desired coming true.

It all turns out to be a  great opportunity but I nver knew it would be this tough! Some times, I have second thoughts as to whether I can make it. But now, I realise I  can never shy away from  addressing the injustice and mischief in my present time.
Each time I kneel on my bedside I ask the Being who hand picked me to give me and my teammates strength to run the race and attain the prize ahead – ” Oneness in all humanity”
